The portals to the Faire are open

April 24, 2015

The time has arrived the portals between the lands of fantasy and everyday have opened. I  have to make the most of this opportunity, for I have heard that I must undertake a Quest of great importance. I have been called to the castle of the Queen and thought myself to be tasked with joining the search that will take adventurers to far corners of the Lost Lands (https://fantasyfairesl.wordpress.com/events-2/hunt/the-book-of-the-champions/).

the beginning of my quest

Though I am young for such a Quest I am honored to be thought ready for a mission to aide the Queen and realm. I will do everything I can to ensure the safety of those who reside in the lands of Fantasy,  no matter what it takes. For now I must hurry away and discover the details of my mission, I am impatient to begin. You will learn more of my journey very soon.

Fantasy Faire opens

And so begins my tale of exploring the Fantasy Faire 2015, for those new to my blog – welcome I hope you enjoy your visit please feel free to stay. For my longtime readers and friends thank you for joining me on yet another imaginative escapade. The Fantasy Faire is a RFL event and one I feel very passionate about. Now that the event has opened I can share photos of the locations within the Faire, the above photos were taken at the Fairelands Junction. I am wearing assorted items from designers who have made items available to the Fantasy Faire blog group, for which I am honored to be included in.

The lovely Forest Fantasy gown from The White Armory is actually a two piece outfit with optional flowing sleeves. This outfit comes in a range of soft shades delicately highlighted with gold trim and details, it includes standard mesh sizes and a fitmesh option. My crown, necklace and shoes ( yes I know they’re hidden but  I promise to show them soon) feature beautiful circles of pearls set within gold, from Bliensen + MaiTai. I’m also wearing one of the hairstyles released by Wasabi Pills for Fantasy Faire in the light sorbet shade. My skin which is a past group gift from DeeTaleZ has been enhanced further with beautiful eye makeup from Musa, see below for details.

As well as sharing the story I am creating especially for this year’s Fantasy Faire , I will also be posting about other great items that I have discovered at the Faire. PLUS for the first time I have also gone on a landscape photography adventure, and have lots of beautiful photos to share. The builders of the sims continue to exceed past standards of excellence in creating richly detailed imaginative environments. So three different types of Fantasy Faire themed posts interspersed through my usual posts- I will head up these posts with FF in the title, and I hope you enjoy this event .

I just called to say

Billy

As promised a follow on to an earlier post featuring items that are reminiscent of the 50’s ( https://serenestyle.wordpress.com/2015/04/18/billy-dont-you-lose-my-number/).. here we have Billy thinking about making that call.

I really enjoy checking out menswear because it is great to see the variety and quality that is coming to SL Menswear more and more frequently – about time I say ! When I got the chance to blog some mens clothing from Oddity, through the WLTB group I grabbed the chance. The owner helpfully gave me a couple of extra items from the store including some current gifts.. these boots are one of them. I suggest you grab the SLurl above the details and check out these items and more.

Before I drop to the details I wanted to share a couple of photos showing off the hud options with the Aldo shirt , which features a sexy pinup model detail .

collage Oddity Aldo shirt

As well as having options to color the side stripes, the panels where the pinup poses , you can change the color of the center panel plus the buttons. At the bottom of the hud are another couple buttons allowing you to switch on or off the materials effect and a brightness. In the first photo both are on, in the second both are off, and in the third just the materials feature was selected. It is fantastic to see such cool effects on the fabric of clothing.

Another fantastic feature , but it is not shown here is that the pants include several versions giving you more options in what footwear you wear with these.

Details:
Skin: Giovanni/Mocha/Bald, Ooh-la-licious , and Medium Stubble Tattoo ( 1 of the many facial hair options included)
Shape: DAMIEN modded, 7 Deadly s{K}ins

Kungler Diskount

April 21, 2015

kungler sale

I love a good sale , and you know any sale at Kunglers is going to be a good great sale- especially when you see that it involves clothing, shoes and jewelry. The first floor is for clothing, short dresses, some lovely long formals, and some great classy casual separates- all at 50L each. Move up to the second floor you will find a range of boots and shoes- yup all 50L. ( By the way you can use the TP board for a short cut). To head to the jewelry area it’s up and across, now I must confess I was initially confused since the advertising I read indicated it was “Big Sale All 50L, clothing shoes , jewelry” which I took to mean ALL clothing ,shoes and jewelry, however it means all clothing , shoes and selected jewelry. To be honest I didn’t really discover any area or signs designating what was for sale in the Jewelry area, but I headed up to the discount area and there are cheaper pieces there for budget conscious shoppers. This is where you will find a lot of the previous TDR jewelry offers, like the bracelets I am wearing .

The sale runs until 30th April so don’t miss out on the chance to get some super bargains.

AnE Chelsea applier

I am so excited to share an upcoming release from Adam N Eve, which you can get in just a few more days. AE has been around in SL for years and if you are looking for either makeup , beautiful skins or Slink compatible items ( makeup, gloves , stockings , some lingerie) I would always include this on my list of suggestions. However there is a new development and I was thrilled to hear from owner -designer Sachi Vixen that she has been working on not one but THREE applier looks for the LeLutka mesh head.

I posted about the mesh head in an earlier post ( https://serenestyle.wordpress.com/2015/04/08/cinderella-returns/) and included some photos of makeup appliers that Sachi had already released for the LeLutka head. Over the weekend Sachi offered me a review copy of her Chelsea head applier and it lived up to my hopes for the potential of these heads. I do enjoy Glam Affair skins but I love being able to wear a wide range of different skins, and especially for skins that give a more “lived in look” . Often when I wear Glam Affair skins I look a young version of myself which is fine .. but not how I see my avi.

AnE Chelsea mesh head applier for LeLutka

Chelsea is a “mid-range” skin not super pale but not tanned or ethnically darker. I’ve taken a range of photos to show some of the different options that the AE LeLutka applier has, and compiled it as a collage below. These photos were taken using Nams Optimal Skin and Prim windlight.

collage Chelsea AnELeft to right top row first;

First I am wearing the lips in a mid level gloss, my skin has moles ( cute!) and I applied a light eyeshadow from the AE LeLutka applier eyeshadow set 3 (eyeshadow is available for purchase in store already).

Second I swapped the lips to matte, bare skin and the cat eyeliner – these features are all available on the head applier from AE, shown in the next two pictures.

Third I played around with the lips using the AE LeLutka lipstick set 3, reducing both the shine and tint, my skin is freckled and I used the smudged eye liner look on the hud.

Final picture in the group I am wearing eyeshadow and lipsticks from the separate AE range of makeup appliers for LeLutka mesh heads, with a bare skin base.

You will  find in store at Adam n Eve Skins a range of skins, a beautification centre with different makeup possibilities ( for standard and mesh heads), appliers that you need for Slink Physique ( mesh body), Slink hands and feet, Lolas, Phat Azz, Maitreya (mesh body).. phew a lot to see isn’t there? You can take a look at Sachi’s Flickr to see a few of these items: https://www.flickr.com/photos/sachivixen/ or you can grab the SLurl below the details and go try some demos for yourself.

Please note:

Although I have been specifically talking about the LeLutka mesh heads, of which I am wearing Aria, I should also let you know (if you didn’t already) that Sachi has a range of appliers to use with the Slink Visage too.

The AE appliers for the LeLutka heads are not available until 23rd April ( this is the arrangement for all Skin makers releasing appliers for these heads).

Billy don’t you lose my number

April 18, 2015

Rockabilly theme , Genre

I love roses, and the roses of NSP combine the lush colors and multi layered aspect of a real rose with the durability of a virtual rose. Afterall everyone knows how easily a rose petal bruises, yet in SL I can wear my beautiful rose hairpiece and choker from NSP and they look as fresh and beautiful at the end of the night as they did when I unpacked them. You can find these lovely roses in two places : the first of which is Genre, which has a Rockabilly theme which I really enjoyed ( check details below to know what items can be found at Genre), the second place is at the NEW NSP/Muse Mainstore where Norena has released a delicate white rose with polka dotted mint bow as a group gift . Grab the SLurl below and join up if you haven’t already, the new store is looking fantastic and all past group gifts are still available in a room just for this purpose.

NSP+ Lumae @ Genre

As a follow up post I have some great mens items to share so look out for a post featuring ‘Billy’.

All the world is your stage

April 17, 2015

on stage

I really wanted these shoes as soon as I saw them, not that I ever did ballet in RL, but there was something so appealing about the ribbons. I picked up the different parts of this look at different events, some of which have finished already, so to find any pieces I suggest heading to the mainstores. The stage is something I have had in my inventory for a long time, it actually comes loaded with animations to dance or sing, singly or with a friend.
